Who Moved My Cheese? - A Amazing Way to Deal With Change In your Work and In your life. DR SPENCER JOHNSON-Foreword by KENNETH BLANCHARD Ph.D. “Life is no straight and every corridor along which we travel isn ’ t free and unhampered, but is a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley. But always, if we have faith, God will open a door for us, Not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of, But one that will ultimately prove good for us. ” A. J. Cronin

The Story Behind The Story By Kenneth Blanchard, Ph.D. I am thrilled to be telling you “the story behind the story of “ Who Moved My Cheese? ” Because it means the book has now been written, and is available for all of us to read, enjoy and share with others. This is something I ’ve wanted to see happen ever since I first heard Spencer Johnson tell his great “Cheese ” story, years ago, before we wrote our book The One Minute Manager together. I remember thinking then how good the story was and how helpful it would be to me from that moment on. Who Moved My Cheese? Is a story about change that takes place in a Maze where four amusing characters look for “Cheese ”- cheese being a metaphor for what we want to have in life, whether it is a job, a relationship, money, a big house, freedom, health, recognition, spiritual peace, or even an activity like jogging or golf. Each of us has our own idea of what Cheese is, and we pursue it because we believe it makes us happy. If we get it, we often become attached to it. And if we lose it, or it ’s taken away, it can be traumatic. The “Maze ” in the story represents where you spend time looking for what you want. It can be the organization you work in, the community you live in, or the relationships you have in your life. I tell the Cheese story that you are about to read in my talks around the world, and often hear later from people about what a difference it has made to them.

Believe it or not, this little story has been credited with saving careers, marriages and lives! One of the many real-life examples comes from Charlie Jones, a well-respected broadcaster for NBC-TV, who revealed that hearing the story of “Who Moved My Cheese? ” saved his career. His job as a broadcaster is unique, but the principles he learned can be used by anyone. Here ’s what happened: Charlie had worked hard and had done a great job of broadcasting Track and Field events at an earlier Olympic Games, so he was surprised and upset when his boss told him he ’d been removed from these showcase events for the next Olympics and assigned to Swimming and Diving.
